HOME SWEET HOME CAKE TOPPERS


Sometimes you need to stay home and sometimes you simply want to. Either way, you can sweeten up your days at home with these home sweet home cake toppers!


WHAT YOU NEED:

  • craft foam

  • paper (we used gold and silver shimmer paper!)

  • white glue

  • toothpicks

  • tape

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. From craft foam, cut out various sizes of rectangles and triangles (for the base of the house and the roof).

  2. From paper, cut out miniature squares for windows and miniature rectangles for doors. We added some doors with rounded tops for variety!

  3. Mix and match the various parts to create mini houses. Use white glue to assemble the parts.

  4. Attach a toothpick to the back side of each house using tape.

  5. Stick them in your cake of choice!

ACTIVITY EXTENSION:

  • Turn this into a family and/or friends Zoom activity! Work together (on screen!) to make your home sweet home cake toppers and then enjoy a slice of cake together!

CONNECTION STARTERS:

  • What are your favourite things to do at home?

  • What is your favourite room in the house? Why?

  • What sorts of things make a house feel cozy?

THINGS TO CELEBRATE & ENCOURAGE:

  • Using scissors safely

  • Identifying shapes

  • Embracing the mix-and-match!

  • Taping toothpicks securely

  • Using toothpicks as intended!

You know what? I think we need to make another home sweet home cake! That family Zoom call sounds very enticing and we’re missing our cousins big-time right now!

Please remember to tag us @theartstadium so we can send your cake toppers some love!


Happy connecting!


XOXO,

Lindsay
